    Are they worth the risk? On sale for $89.00. Not sure if they will void warranty if I have trouble. Good price but worth the risk?

    Yes it is worth your risk with many of the reported incidents stemming from batteries I will be glad to let other folks fly their drones on non oem batteries

    It's really not worth it. Consider how much you paid for your Phantom before you replace critical components with 3rd party parts.

    I wasn't sure if people have had experience with this brand. I guess it's true, why risk 800 bucks to save 50 or so.

    Doesn't matter to me. I would not touch 3rd party batteries.
